Is Your QSR at Risk With Employment Compliance?

Compliance Analytics is your simple solution!

A proactive and preventative risk management approach is key to avoiding damaging issues for the entire network.

Compliance analytics quickly highlights anomalies and “de-risks” any potential liabilities.

Currently, employment compliance is in the spotlight, particularly within the QSR industry. Breaches have seen many a brand’s credibility very publicly come under scrutiny. Non-compliance, by even one franchisee, can affect the reputation and income of every franchisee in the network.

You are probably well aware that the Franchise industry is proving to be particularly at risk when it comes to employment compliance issues such as underpayment of staff. Under the new Bill, franchisors may be liable if their franchisee breaches workplace laws, even if they are not directly involved in the breach. Part of the responsibility of a franchisor is to ensure their franchisees are well equipped to adhere to workplace laws, specifically when hiring and dealing with employees. Best practice at the moment in employment compliance monitoring within the franchise industry is far from ideal and is not preventative:

For many organisations, legal resources can be limited. Reviewing hundreds of (franchisees) employment compliances with varying degrees of priority can be hit and miss and very expensive. Under this structure franchisees wanting to beat the system can still potentially manipulate their financials to comply with once-off audits.

To minimise risk and reduce the costly burden of the current system of auditing, franchisors need to be able to understand new regulations or changes to current regulations, and typically respond to them within a specific period of time. Better insight into employment compliance laws is crucial to maintain regulatory compliance and can reduce the pain of an audit process.

In response to these growing issues within the franchise industry, employment compliance analytics solutions have been developed to apply data gathering applications to satisfy current legal requirements and improve across-the-organisation employment compliance.
